A Black man from Orlando has allegedly fired by his Trump-supporting boss for speaking out against a pro-Trump letter.

The worker, Stan Smith, called the letter “unfair”.

He was fired after he went public with his criticism.

According to WESH 2 News, the boss of Daniels Manufacturing Corporation – George Daniels – included a note with employee payslips.

It read: “If Trump and the Republicans win the election, DMC will hopefully be able to continue operating, more or less as it has been operating lately.”

The letter reportedly continued: “However, if Biden and the Democrats win, DMC could be forced to begin permanent layoffs beginning in late 2020 and/or early 2021”.

Smith told WESH 2 News: “Everybody has a choice to make their own decision. I don’t feel like it was correct to do something like that.”

He continued:

I felt like it was unfair.

He claims his boss ordered his termination because he didn’t like what Smith said. He has now hired an attorney who is preparing a lawsuit.

They are claiming that Smith’s contract was illegally terminate and that it could be in breach of federal election laws against voter intimidation.
